My entry for the : Pretty in Pink Blog Hop Challenge

**Edited to add: Entry for Magnolia Down Under Challenge #30 this fortnight as well. You must take a trip there also to see the delightful cards the design team has made. ****

Good morning everyone!! I haven't gone to bed yet but I will as soon as I post my card for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog Challenge. Clicking on this link will take you to the blog to read about the Challenge and see the 'PINK CANDY'

The Design Team and Lady Diana did wonders with their cards and the Hop was a lot of fun!

For my card I have done a Valentine Card - and so far I believe I am the only person to do one! Really surprised me cause that was the first thing that came to mind. Maybe all the others are smarter than I am and wanted to use different stamps to show how beautiful they could look in PINK?
Here is the front of my card:

I did a lot of things I have never done before and used on this card. One was using Norma's - January 9th.Tutorial for making lace with paper and punches. Another was using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I had the opportunity to purchase a few colours and the one I used on this card is called: Snow Angel. I have sprayed it onto the pink border with the white paper lace on the front of the card, on the whole page of DP on the inside left page, on the white heart of the right inside page as well as the roses!!! It was scary and then fun LOL LOL
I used stamps I got after Valentine's Day last year that I had never used before and it was really great to colour them. I bought them from Diana ( her link is on the upper right corner of my blog. Just click on it and you will be there...) One is called ' Cupid Tilda' and the other is called Amor Tilda #290.
I have tried to take pictures so you can see the Glitter Mist as well as all of the
'BLING' I have used.
Here is a couple of closer pictures of the front of the card:

This is the left inside:

I also took a second one of this one to try to show you the misting - I think you have to look pretty close!

This is the inside right - Misted to death LOL:

I also took a closer one of the flowers but I think you can only see the mist on the green leaves and not on the pink flowers - such a shame as in person they are lovely:

Fabulous card once again Candy!! Loved everything about it ~ the images, your coloring, the roses, the "lace" and the Glimmer Mist above all! My experience with Glimmer Mist has been less than successful ~ yours, on the other hand, has been a 10 for sure! Great card!
love you sweetie!
